A stroll in Steveston, boarding tall ships, and browsing the National Historic Site at Britannia Shipyards. Add in festival stages, food trucks, crafts, puppets, entertainers, dancers, and you have a really unique and exceptionally fun family festival! John and I stopped by the Richmond Maritime Festival earlier this month and he took some great shots of the festivities:

Stages, workshops, and displays on land were complimented by museum exhibits, roving performers, and ship tours on the river. You could climb aboard a heritage vessel or tall ship, listen to live music, and snack on food truck fare and a salmon BBQ.
